“Fabio di Giannantonio, VR46 Ducati rider, expresses confidence that “brighter days will come” once he familiarizes himself with the GP23 MotoGP bike following a challenging start to the 2024 season.”

“The winner of last year’s Qatar Grand Prix found solace in Valentino Rossi’s team after losing his Gresini Ducati seat to Marc Marquez in the latter part of the season. Di Giannantonio’s move to VR46 coincided with a significant surge in form, resulting in his first top-five finishes, podiums, and a victory in the premier class.

Expectations were understandably high for Fabio Di Giannantonio entering his third MotoGP year in 2024. However, despite a promising pre-season, he has yet to deliver standout results, collecting only 15 points from the opening two rounds in Qatar and Portugal.

His seventh-place finish at the Qatar GP remains the highlight thus far, with a tenth-place in Portugal somewhat fortuitous due to several crashes ahead of him.

Though frustrated by the slow start, Fabio di Giannantonio reflects on the lessons from 2023, where simply breaking into the top 10 was celebrated. This perspective has made him more pragmatic.

“50/50, to be honest, because we’ve been fantastic in the tests,” he commented when asked about the frustration of not replicating his strong winter form.”


“We had ample time to collaborate with the team and truly make the bike feel like a second skin – to tailor the bike around you.”

“However, we are aware that we’ve only had three months of working together, so there’s still a 100% understanding needed from both sides—what I require and what I can provide to the team.

“Despite the challenges we’ve faced so far, I believe we’ve done an okay job. Last year, at the start of the season, we were celebrating top 10 finishes like crazy.

“So, I think we’re on the right path, and I’m confident that brighter days are just around the corner.”

Currently, Fabio Di Giannantonio leads the VR46 team in the standings, sitting in 10th place after the first two rounds, while his teammate Marco Bezzecchi has struggled significantly to adapt to the GP23.
